Healthcare systems around the world are under pressure, and personal connected health technologies are demonstrating benefits for improving quality care delivery, clinical outcomes and patient engagement. But before we can implement telemonitoring and telehealth solutions to support integrated care, we must clear the barriers for the transfer of patient-generated data to the healthcare system. We need interoperability built on open standards.
Some advanced health systems have explored ways to promote interoperability along international standards, and are working with the Personal Connected Health Alliance (PCHAlliance) and its Continua Design Guidelines to achieve interoperability. These early adopters, and the PCHAlliance, invite more health systems to join them. To that end, the Continua Adoption Playbook was developed, and includes a set of examples of how these first health systems arrived at the decision to adopt Continua Design Guidelines.
